The University of Wisconsin Law School is delighted to announce the launch of the State Democracy Research Initiative, co-directed by Professors Miriam Seifter and Robert Yablon. The Initiative will shine a spotlight on state democratic processes and institutions, which traditionally receive less attention from legal scholars and educators than those at the federal level. It will also serve as a resource on state-level governance issues for academics, policymakers, and advocates across the country. You can follow the Initiative on Twitter at @UWLawDemocracy, and save the date for a live hybrid kickoff event on Thursday, October 7, 2021, at 5:00 pm CT (3 PT/4 MT/6 ET). Mark your calendars!
